We're in the last month of the year. Normally, I'd be talking about my goals for the month, but this month I'm going to skip it. I've done this before, but this month is different because going to be a hard one for me emotionally. It's the first Christmas since my brother died, and already I can't even. Like the title says, I'd really rather sleep through the entire month.
But I can't. There is family to visit that I haven't seen in a long time and they're looking forward to our visit. Also, curling up and moping all month isn't what my brother would want me to do. He'd sympathize with me not wanting to go be surrounded with people. He was as anti-social, if not more, than I am. But he'd tell me that pouting isn't going to bring him back, so I might as well suck it up and deal with people.
Still, it's going to be an exhausting month, so I'm not going to set goals that I'll be too worn out to try. Maybe I'll have energy to get some writing in, maybe I won't. Given how emotional this month already is, self care is going to be my number one priority.
